Thanks for asking, I always find this one difficult as it takes me back to the root cause of my pauresis. If anyone else is in the house I am still unable to get started using the one facility in the property. Even when there was nobody around it took me a long time to get started. As usual I found myself using pads this is because as I've mentioned before I can only pee silently. I only catheterise as a last resort as I don't want to become too dependant on it. Things are improving very slowly, but this situation for me is about the most challenging.
